Our doctors are experienced in a large variety of soft tissue surgeries for your pet. Whether it is a routine spay, or an emergency C-section, your pet will be carefully monitored by our certified veterinary technicians. We use advanced monitoring equipment including ECG, pulse oximetry, capnography, and blood pressure. We go above and beyond so that you can rest assured that your pets are in good hands.
Some of the common surgeries we provide:
We also routinely bring in a board-certified surgeon for advanced and complex procedures. The most common procedures that he performs are TPLO and other cruciate repair surgeries. This allows you to get the highest standard of care without the stress of travel for your pet.
Dental disease is the number one health issue affecting 80% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of three, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society. Daily plaque accumulates on your pet's teeth and then mineralize into tartar, which can't be removed without a professional dental cleaning. Yearly exams are necessary to assess your pet's teeth and determine if they are due for a dental prophylaxis. All pets undergoing anesthesia for a dental cleaning will first have pre-operative blood work to ensure that they are healthy.
During a dental prophylaxis, your pet will be put under general anesthesia so that we can safely examine their oral cavity and scale tartar off their teeth. We take full mouth x-rays on all of our patients undergoing a dental procedure to find hidden disease under the gumline. Lastly, the teeth are polished and a sealant is applied that prevents plaque build-up.
Some dental disease requires advanced extraction techniques. Our doctors are skilled in performing complicated extractions and using techniques that can help save a tooth and prevent the need for extraction such as bonded sealants.
90% of extractions require some level of oral surgery, and are not as simple as "pulling teeth".
For 18 years we have used digital dental x-ray to prevent retained root fragments (the most common complication of dental extractions).
